Despite their young age there’s a very ambitious radio-ready sound that separates Hull’s FRONTEERS from many of their new artist peers which will no doubt catapult the four piece as Ones To Watch in 2016. The single ‘It’s Up To Me Now’ was produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Eaves, Lake Komo) and is a punchy, hook-laden statement of intent. It’s released on boutique singles label Drawing Board Recordings via Caroline International on 13th November.
“At the time I was writing it I’d just lost a decent job, so I had problems with money and I had people telling me that I didn’t have my head on straight and that being in a band doesn’t pay,” explains vocalist Andy Towse, continuing defiantly, “so this song’s just about doing it anyway because you want to.”
The band, who are already attracting the attention of a host of record labels, have recently toured northern England with Pretty Vicious & Blossoms. They will be announcing more live dates soon.
